Razia closed out the Young Driver testing for 2012 with Toro Rosso

Today was the last of a three day Young Driver Test and effectively brought to a close the busiest three week stint on the F1 calendar, with two Grands Prix in India and Abu Dhabi, followed by this test. Today is also the final day of F1 testing in 2012.

Luiz Razia: “It was tough for me today, because I’ve been running a fever, although it didn’t stop me completing the programme. Like on Tuesday, the team had plenty of work for me to do and I was happy that I was able to find a good balance on the car and also had more confidence when it came to changing settings from the steering wheel while I was driving. Overall, these two days in the car have been a great experience for me and I really enjoyed working with an Italian team, as everyone at Toro Rosso made me feel very welcome.”

Laurent Mekies: “The past three days have been very productive, as our car ran with no major problems, which allowed us to complete a lot of laps. Our job list was very full, testing many items, the majority aimed at next year’s car, which will be very useful when it comes to preparing for 2013. In addition, it’s fair to say that some of the work could be beneficial to us in the remaining two races of this year. Both Luiz, on the first and last days and Johnny yesterday, did a good job for us, by not making any mistakes, thus allowing us to complete our programme.”
